If you like old photos, you need to take a look at the Library of Congress photochrom collection on flickr.

Photos from all over the world, like this one:

It always happens.

I'm digging through my collection of "stuff," looking for one thing and get totally sidetracked when I find another.

I was looking for the photos I took two decades ago when I had a little vacation in the Smoky Mountains.

What I found instead were three of my lighthouse postcards.

So then, I started putzing around on the Library of Congress' photo section - I just love that place - and found more.
